Constantly calibrating compass in Google Maps


I keep having to recalibrate compass when using Google Maps every usage or so.  Why is s10 and S10e losing its compass calibration so often?

The result is that I never have an accurate positioning and routing. Especially when I drive. Is my phone broken??


So annoying

If there are no relevant software updates @Venom7000 then maybe have a Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Centre take a look.

Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G SM-9820 _256Gb SnapDragon 865+

Samsung One Ui 2.5/ Android 10.



This is not issue with just my phone. Many Samsung users experience this. My work phone s7 also has this problem.


I dont live in a country where there are any such Samsung customer supports.

Also the phone is out of warranty.


Just to prove how this happens to many people I present you this reddit thread:


There are many of these threads (few of them on this forum too)


We need to launch a massive "support ticket"
